Commission: Kalikiki's Mask of Binding by 0nuku Commission: Kalikiki's Mask of Binding by 0nuku
"Mask of Binding, Allows the user to intertwine souls with another being to impress their own mental and physical experiences onto them for a short time. Worn by Toa Kalikiki." [Source]

Well, I knew it had to come someday, and I guess today is the day. :devLegoMetal44: (commissioner of the Kanohi Savitar) commissioned Blue-Bagel's (formerly KaibaGal) Kalikiki mask as a Secret Santa present. Now you can order the ever popular mask for yourselves! As many people use Gali's 2015 mask or a Protector mask for their MOCs of her, I designed this mask to fit the G2 heads.

Order now on Shapeways, and if you want a commission for yourself, be sure to check out my Journal to get all the information on how you can get your own designs 3D printed!

I am surprised you managed to make a 3D Printable G2 Mask. Wasn't sure the clip-on part would work with a 3D Printed object.

hello, I am planning to start making my own mask models, armor pieces, and weapons parts for my bionicle MOCs to print as 3D stuff, could you give some advice on that or could you tell me how to get the parts inside the mask that hold it to the head right?

Well, I hate to sound self-promoting, but I do have a Discord server with several other modelers who are always willing to offer help to a new face. 

But otherwise, 3D printing is all about careful measurement, and when that fails, trial and error. It took me quite a few iterations of Eltanin's Pakari to get those clips to fit, even after I checked everything with my calipers. If your school or library has a 3D printer, that will help you immensely. Also you want your clips to be just a little tighter than Lego's to compensate for the printing errors. If you want to hop into the server sometime I can offer some more feedback, but those are my tips for the moment.

cool, I may just join it. The only 3D printer near me happens to be in the mall a few blocks away from where I live, so I have that to get my stuff from. I have not done any modeling yet since I have yet to download the free program, but once I do, I am so starting on this. Once I start doing it, I only plan to make the models for myself, but maybe at a later date I might try selling the stuff I make. Who knows. thanks for the info and server invite.

So does this print as two colors? I'm a little confused as to how that works.

Oh no, that's just for demonstration purposes. Shapeways will create it in one color and you'd have to paint it to get this look.

Awwww that sucks. :( There's no way to set up multiple colors on a printing? I thought 3D printers could do that?

Well, yes. Shapeways has a full color option, but as it's sandstone, I'm worried about the stability, especially for a G2 connection.

Again you'll have to clarify because I'm not familiar with this stuff. What do you mean its sandstone? LIke the color the actual material that just...I don't know what that means. :XD:

Well, the texture of the full color material is very much like sandstone, which also tends to be brittle, not something you want for a Kanohi

Awww how come that's the case? Can't you just use a different Material? Again I don't understand this stuff at all, so I don't even know if asking a question like that is relevant. My understanding of 3D printing is that its all printed tiny layer by layer and if you wanna switch colors the machine can do that.


What I'd really like to see become more of a thing is injection Molding at a household level. Cause that would be way cooler than 3D printed stuff. Though I know the process is more involved. You gotta CNC molds, then get the injection and cooling process right.

Just how the tech works nowadays. The material that can take the colored ink is just a bit more fragile.

Yeah, injection molding does look a lot better, but like you said, it's a lot more involved (and expensive). Also, much less customizable.

I knew somebody would make this sooner or later. And only 9 bucks? That's a steal on Shapeways! Now my Kali MoC will finally be PERFECT!

:D Hope you like it. I worried about making a mask without any input from the creator.

There are a couple of details that I’ve updated but there’d be no reason for you to have to adjust this at all.

It really is awesome !

Good to hear! I'd be happy to make any changes to better reflect the character.

Nah, that really won’t be necessary; you’ve done a fine job here.

Kal gradually upgrades her mask with tech over the years, so the changes are more of a personal adaption to the original mask base than anything anyway

You've been on a roll with these masks, Onuku. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't curious about how you would adapt the kanohi of my team, the Toa Heva.
